Thinking Beyond the Classroom: Tools for Uniting Activism and Learning

Many students are taught early on that extracurriculars and philanthropy exist on the fringes of academic pursuit. While incoming students may have high hopes for making positive change, these hopes are often forgotten when academic demands increase. Come to this unique workshop to learn ways to integrate these fields through conversations with a panel of graduate students and faculty who have been able to engage activism in their scholarship. We will also inform you of campus resources that can help turn your ideals into action.
